Apache FOP

Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is a print formatter driven by XSL formatting objects (XSL-FO) and an output independent formatter. It is a Java application that reads a formatting object (FO) tree and renders the resulting pages to a specified output. Output formats currently supported include PDF, PS, PCL, AFP, XML (area tree representation), Print, AWT and PNG, and to a lesser extent, RTF and TXT. The primary output target is PDF.

  1. I said this on Slashdot. The reason why I put it here, because Flying Saucer uses same concept. And you don't have a way to contact you direct.
    Why deal with hard coding libraries for PDF rendering?
    With Flying Saucer you can make XHTML and CSS 2.1(with some 3 features), and then you don't have to deal with the hard coding of the report.
    Plus you can generate the report on the web right to your client.
    I have using Flying Saucer for over a year, and has real made creating PDF reports a lot easier.
    Before finding Flying Saucer I did research on JasperReport and Birt.
    And Flying Saucer was the only one that gave a 98% rendering of TinyMCE HTML tags.
